Seaweek - Time to Get Organised

Posted 6 years, 11 months ago by Vince Kerr    0 comments

Seaweek 2011 is coming up fast!  Hosted by the NZ Association for Environmental Education, Seaweek is New Zealand's only annual, national celebration of the sea.  Dates for next year are 26 February-6 March and the theme is Back to the Future - the culture, history and traditions of the sea.  More general information is available at www.seaweek.org.nz (site updates in development).
During Seaweek groups, organisations and individuals host events and activities relating to their interests and ideally to the theme for the year.  These can be held at a local, regional or even national level - it's over to you.   What you do is also totally up to you - it could be a competition or new product/resource launch, a movie, free day at your site, discounted trips, snorkel day, swim, guided walk - you can check out all the events that were run in 2010 for ideas.  There is support with promotion and publicity through the Seaweek marketing effort and other resources may also be available. 
Northland is a fantastic region to celebrate Seaweek in!  This is a great opportunity for people to showcase what they do and care about during the best of the summer.
Please pass this message on to your networks and friends.
